This week, Sara and Nikki reannounce the renewal of their really great TV show Nikki & Sara LIVE (thanks for watching!) before quickly introducing their guest, comedian Al Madrigal (The Daily Show, @almadrigal). Al's new standup special Why is the Rabbit Crying? premieres on Comedy Central this Friday April 26, making this episode the perfect opportunity to reflect upon the grueling road sets and iffy TV spots that have gotten him this far. It's "gratitude and caution", Sara points out, that keep a comic sane as he strives through those early days, dreaming of a time when he'll have earned the respect and admiration of both his peers and his cussing kid cousins.

This week, Sara and Nikki are personally invited to a Taylor Swift gig out in Jersey and neither snow nor rain nor violent food poisoning will stay these girls from meeting the Swift herself. Comic and birthday girl Sue Costello (@suecostello, The Fighter, TV everything) takes the ladies through her one-woman show I Wasn't Trying To Be Funny for which she's currently raising money to bring to a broader audience through Kickstarter (help her out!). The show covers Sue's entire comedic career thus far, from the highs of being discovered at an elderly bringer show to the improbably unlucky lows of jealous mentors and hindering home runs, and how through it all she's maintained her trademark candor and zeal.
In closing, Nikki implores you to watch Nikki & Sara LIVE on MTV Tuesday at 11pm/10c. Trust her, she's an expert in these things.
